Topical

Another hot topic which is on the lips of every good Mother in the UAE is of course Education.  That old chestnut, that can on occasion break friendships and I am pretty sure ruins a good coffee morning too!!  Now whilst I totally agree with Education I don't feel that I place too much pressure on Mitten to succeed. In my eyes she is a success already, and always will be.  I didn't cry when I was told she had failed an entrance exam when she was 4, because she couldn't read, course she couldn't, she was only 4 years old. 

I remember being told when she was about 3, by another Mother that her son would do better in life than Mitten because he went to a better school.  I hope I bump into her when our children are in their 20's, will be interesting to see how they have both turned out. I think my daughter, with a Mother who is realistic about her potential will have a daughter who has respect for herself and achieves what she desires through self motivation.

Education along with Maids is a hot topic in the UAE, for me however I am just grateful I have a beautiful daughter, who attends a super school, she is a happy well balanced kid who enjoys her school days very much.  Long  may she have that memory I say. 

Just remember it doesn't matter what your kids achieve in life, a Mother's love is unconditional, and I for one will love Mitten just as much if she fails an educational task as I do when she achieves one.  What is important is that we have our children and they are fit and healthy and enjoying their lives.

Think about it ...
